Review and Tasting

Sampled on 05/06/2014

Appearance

Clear, yellow golden amber.

Aroma

Chocolate - both white and milk, vanilla oak, crème brulée, brandy butter/buttered toast and egg custard tart with nutmeg, spearmint and faint cardamom. More spicy with water.

Taste

Initially creamy vanilla custard before charcoal, tar, toffee and spicy dry oak emerge and dominate. Again water amplifies spice.

Aftertaste

Smoke wafts across the slightly sweet fruit wood finish.
